I’m starting to see more and more answers from brand-new users that appear to be ChatGPT-driven copies. They have a veneer of truth but otherwise often miss the mark. Or, if they do fully address the question in the title, I’m bothered by the approach - mostly just the absence of any disclosure or disclaimer that the answer was provided by ChatGPT.
I’m flagging them and downvoting when I see them. I’ve provided some (mostly moderate and hopefully polite) comments to state that this not acceptable practice and should be retrained. But I’m losing patience.
I might be willing to take a softer line if there were any disclaimer from the OP that the answer was guided by ChatGPT. Or, leaving the answer as-is but marking it as CW.
Also my Turing test might flag some false-negatives - but we have some electronic tools for that.
It seems like the red-flags are:
- New users
- Hot questions
- Simple questions without a lot of background that can be put into ChatGPT prompt
- The answer is way longer than the question and lacks any pointers to other info or papers, etc.
- No grammatical error or typos
I’m looking for a consensus. Should we remove these at will, or flag, or take some other course of action?
